Multiple Voices

An Introduction to Bilingualism

«It's been hard to find a good textbook in bilingualism for undergraduate students in such diverse fields as psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and language policy; but Myers-Scotton, a leading scholar in the area, has met the need. Topics covered include language maintenance, language ideology, inter-cultural communication, lexical and grammatical borrowing, and language globalization. Numerous case studies from nations as far-flung as Italy, China, and Kenya, and from immigrant communities such as Turks in the Netherlands and Haitians in New York, make this a most attractive volume."
William Bright, Editor Emeritus, Language in Society



"Multiple Voices accomplishes a rare feat – it is both an accessible introduction to the study of bilingualism and a comprehensive treatment of research in the field. This is an ideal textbook for courses on language contact." Janet Fuller, Southern Illinois University

"This introduction is not a simple synthesis of research and theory, but also a compendium of a lifetime of dedication to understanding bilingualism."
